It's a tried and true fact (probably) that Ruth Bader Ginsberg is America's favorite Supreme Court Justice, by which I mean, she's probably the only Supreme Court Justice most people in America can actually name and recognize on sight. This popularity is due in large part to the proliferation of her Tumblr-inspired Notorious RGB t-shirts. But that fact aside, RBG is a seriously admirable woman. Her consistent track record of spurring on and protecting women's rights across the board, from access to birth control to attempts at equal pay between the sexes, makes her a hard lady not to love. Plus, even though she is the oldest serving member of the Supreme Court, she still has a great sense of humor and says some pretty badass things on the regular.
Case in point, not only is Ginsberg aware of her own meme and Tumblr, but she's a huge fan! In an interview with Katie Couric for Yahoo! News, Ginsberg said, "I haven’t seen anything that isn’t either pleasing or funny on the Web site. I think she has created a wonderful thing with Notorious R.B.G. I will admit I had to be told by my law clerks, what’s this Notorious, and they explained that to me, but the Web site is something I enjoy, all of my family do.”
The Justice actually loves her meme so much she's taken things to the next level and by purchasing a huge back stock of t-shirts emblazoned with The Notorious R.B.G moniker. And who can blame her? The t-shirt and nickname are most definitely worthy of this woman's living legend status. And since she's been named one of Time's 100 Most Influential People of the Year, you're probably going to want to jump on this bandwagon, ASAP.
Lucky for you, I've gathered together the cream of the RBG crop below. It's like the Notorious R.B.G. — I mean B.I.G. — always said, "Mo Money, Mo Problems," so go ahead and spend yours on one of these sweet tees, available at a variety of online sources.
